All messages and email are replied to personally by Charlotte. We will always get back to you pronto if you have any questions or queries. While staying we are on hand to assist in any way possible to make sure you have a wonderful holiday or break. We can unpack online groceries if they arrive before you! We can reserve a table at any restaurant. We can adjust the heating before arrival to suit preferences. We can put NO fresh flowers out if you are allergic. We always leave some fresh eggs and other small bunches of herbs or seasonal veg from our garden. Sometimes we leave fresh bara brith or mince pies. At Christmas you can decorate the fresh tree supplied or we can do it for you. We listen to what you want us to do to make sure you get the most out of staying here at Old Oak Barn. Over the years visitors have shown their appreciation in all sorts of ways and we really value the wonderful friendships we have made all over the world. Diolch!
